Third String But Playing on Special Teams

"When Vinatieri boarded his flight to Virginia, he knew Blevins only as a kicking coach who had consulted for the New York Jets the previous season. He had no idea there was anything unusual about Blevins until a short, stocky man rolled up to him at the airport arrivals lounge with his right hand outstretched.

"Blevins told Vinatieri that he had been confined to a wheelchair his whole life because of cerebral palsy, that the condition had taken his legs but never affected his mind. That was how Vinatieri learned the fate of his floundering kicking career rested on a man who had never actually kicked a football before."

Is he even playing this week after his leg injury?
King of clutch! Can't wait to see him become the scoring leader Sunday.

Of course, within a month of being named commissioner, Goodell shut down NFL Europe.

That's why today we don't see any Vinatieris or Warners, etc.
